I find it amazing that God has blessed the world with Christian thinkers like Bonhoeffer. It's wild that someone was wise enough to recognize the need for this topic and then took time to articulate a thoughful examination of the subject. For instance, when a new church is gathered, I would think it rare that the church would prioritize and recognize and specifically advocate a stance on such subjects as:
*the importance of humility within the community,
*the importance of listening,
*the impact that individual sin has on the larger community, etc.

I've appreciated this book as a prompting to consider what relational priorities a church community might embrace. I'm thinking I'll be be reading more from Bonhoeffer in the future.

(Note: the last 2 chapters were my favorite of the book, so I encourage you to hang in there if you're finding the beginning to be a bit slow.)
